dating, carbon 14 nerdjoke

I put my hand up on your hip. When I ___ you ___ we ___ (Links post!)

That song came on the radio yesterday and I cannot get it out of my head. Feel free to offer up new ear worms for me.

  • I pulled NaNoWriMo together in the end, WHEW. Finding that last chapter and notes for three others (I'm a fan of outlines) got me over the finish line. Congrats to those of you that made it, as well!
  • Today is bread day, yum
  • Today is also homemade pizza day night, holy yum
  • This dude, while clearly having too much time on his hands, is seriously awesome. He took a midi drum pad (you use this for studio-type work) and kitted it out for GUITAR HERO. And won on expert. If you've got 8 minutes, watch him waste "Through The Fires And Flames" with a DRUM. (note to new folks: I have a serious thing for drummers. It can't be helped, only encouraged) This guy was clearly a quad player in HS and college. Cool things (to me:) he set his kit up for double notes so he could play three notes at a time with two sticks. THAT IS SO COOL. I don't care about the nerd factor, that video makes me want to get the same kit for Mr. S (a former drummer) and watch him and have sexy tiems. :D
  • Continuing on the nerd train, for my fellow Trekkers out there, here are some steampunk Star Trek wallpapers. Spock, natch, is my favorite followed by the Chekhov and Sulu poster. :)
  • Continuing on the steampunk train *shovels in some coal* this guy makes steampunk Lego kits. I don't care how old you are, those are too cool for school. Side note about Legos, if you want to get a cool present for someone into Legos, you can submit a drawing and they'll make a Lego creation just for you. If you have a little boy that's drawn something, how neat would that be for him on Hanukkah or Christmas?
  • And a head's up: that steampunk blog will suck your day away, if you're not careful. I spent a solid hour looking at their astrolabe pics. Am I the biggest geek, or what? (I mean, come on. Steampunk Stormtroopers!!)
  • Lastly, this is a website that will print CUSTOM FABRIC for a very reasonable price, imo. $18 bucks a yard for your own design? Nice. (Considering that high-end designers charge well over $180 per yard.) How many times have you wished you had just the right material for drapes, etc, but nothing was quite right? I plan on using this service a LOT.

It was thebratqueen's birthday this weekend, someone whom I've had the pleasure of meeting and working with on a panel. TBQ? I hope it was lovely, that there were delicious foods and proper teas, and that the animals gave you many lovings!
